Eagles, vultures already building nests


This BBC video says about itself:

Steller’s sea eagles battle golden eagles at a lake in Russia’s Kamchatka Peninsula.

Translated from Avifauna birds zoo in Alphen, the Netherlands:

Winter is well underway. Yet, this does not stop the Steller’s sea eagles from beginning to build their nest. Like every year the couple builds their nest in January, because at the end of this month, the eggs are expected. If all goes well, we will be able to welcome the new eaglets in March.

Also in the residence next to the Steller’s eagles, birds are working hard. The Rüppells vultures are moving nesting materials all the time. The bird wardens have already seen several matings. Last year was the first time that a Rüppells vulture chick was born and raised here. Hopefully they will manage again this year to raise offspring.
